Mother’s Day 2022 Gift Guide for Newish Moms

Mother’s Day 2022 Gift Guide for Newish Moms

Yes, there are a million Mother’s Day 2022 Gift Guides out there on the internet. But I couldn’t help myself. Most gift guides make me cringe, so I had to make my own list! The below is a gift guide for new-ish moms (like me!) with thoughtful gifts that I would gladly accept. (hint, hint) Even better, most are small business goods so you can feel good about your purchase.

Mother’s Day 2022 Gift Guide

  1. Fun Mom Hat

I love this hat because it is cheeky and minimalist. It can go with a lot of outfits and will make me chuckle every time. Gotta remind Mom not to take life too seriously 🙂

2. Custom song for Mom

Okay, so this gift MIGHT be in the realm of cheesy. But hear me out. I actually love this concept. For around ~$99 you can get a custom song written, sung and produced for your Mom. And you get to keep it for a lifetime and play it as many times as you want.

Lockie made for our son Lennox and the process was pretty easy. You simply provide information to influence the lyrics, music genre, song tone and much more. (As seen on Shark Tank!)

3. Custom initial iPhone case

So this gift is more of a gamble. This custom initial iPhone case takes a risk with style and there’s a chance it may not fit your Mom’s vibe. If you’re unsure, take note of what color clothes she typically wears. What color is her purse? Her wallet? Does this case fit in with her general aesthetic and color palette?

5. Custom embroidered sweatshirt

Another customizable gift! (Are we seeing a theme here?) Crew neck sweatshirts are having a major moment right now and so is Grandmacore, ahem, embroidery. The embroidery is tasteful and minimal which makes this a great everyday sweatshirt. School pickup uniform? Yes!

6. Kids Artwork Keepsake

These are adorable. And this is a budget-friendly gift at $39.99. I love the idea of taking one of your kids precious art pieces and making it a lasting wood keepsake. Love. Love. Love. Great for Mom’s office, a window sill, or a shelf in the living room or playroom.

7. A photo shoot for Mom and kiddos

Mom is the one always asking for photos with the kids. What a treat to organize a photo shoot for Mom! (linked above) is a really cool concept that is available in major cities. You select a nearby location for your free 30 minute shoot, enjoy a custom shoot, and then only pay for the photos you love after! Photos start at $30. Super affordable.

So really, you have nothing to lose here. Bonus that this is an AAPI female-run small business!

8. Start a plant tradition

Does your Mom looooooove plants? Is she on PlantTok? Start a yearly tradition where you get her a gorgeous new plant (or succulent) every year for Mother’s Day. There’s always room for more plants. Inside, outside, so many options.

I like using to buy house plants because of the easy process. You can buy them with planters for a complete gift delivered with no hassle! This beauty in the picture is their Majesty Palm Floor Plant.

THOUGHTS?! Was this a cringy Mother’s Day 2022 Gift Guide for Newish Moms? Gosh I hope not.
